4 Huge Wash. Wildfires Merge Into 1

Four fires sparked by lightning Monday in north-central Washington had grown so big by Sunday that fire officials said the separate blazes had grown into one huge wildfire covering more than 370 square miles, NBC News reported. The fire wasn't contained but some parts of it had burned out on its own. One hundred homes were destroyed, and the towns of Winthrop, Twisp, Pateros and Mazama remained without phone and internet service on Sunday, according to NBC Seattle affiliate King 5.
